professor and former u.s. ambassador nicholas burns and richard haas, president of the council on foreign relations. welcome to you both. starting with you, richard haas, let's take an overview. is the obama foreign policy defendable four years later? >> for sure it's defendable. it's not to say it's flawless. but he can point to obviously the killing of osama bin laden. he can point to, among other things, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. the middle east, even though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against vi

to the romney campaign; and longtime diplomat and former ambassador to nato, nicholas burns. and just to clarify, you're supporting the president but you're not part of the campaign. >> that's right. >> woodruff: let me start with you, senator coleman, last night, what provoked the romney camp to issue a statement criticizing a statement by the u.s. embassy in cairo and criticizing the obama administration about something that had come out hours earlier? >> well, first, the embassy is part of the obama administration. i think last i heard the state department was still part of the administration. and the statement that came out of the state department was absolutely outrageous. it was sympathizing with the protesters, rather than defending american sovereignty and american values. and so the governor thought it is appropriate-- it's never too early to defend american values. what's fascinating about that is the obama administration then distanced itself from that statement. i believe after governor romney issued his statement. and i will say that-- i know ambassador patterson very, very well--

as a steady leader. here is what nicholas burns told andrea mitchell. >> i was frankly very disappointed and dismayed to see governor romney inject politics into this very difficult situation. governor romney has n a very unwise way, injected himself in a situation where he clearly doesn't have all the facts. >> romney's statement did earn him this praise. >> today romney is the only guy looking presidential. romney is the only guy who looks like he understands what went wrong, what went right, and what shouldn't be happening now. he looks like he's the only adult in the room. >> republican congressional leadership chose not to join romney and instead chose to honor the dead. >> we honor the americans we lost in libya and we will stand united in our response. >> i'm going to ask that you all join me in a moment of silence. in tribute to ambassador stevens. >> joining me now, msmbc's john hiel man and washington editor at large for the atlantic, steve clemons. joy when your biggest fan is rush limbaugh, you're in trouble. >> the word that keeps coming back to me when i think about the per
